September in Plovdiv

Folklore Festival Plovdiv Bulgaria

The amphitheatre of Plovdiv, built under emperor Trajan, less than half-an-hour’s walk from the conference hotel.

Plovdiv, the second-largest city in Bulgaria, is on UNESCO’s world heritage list and constantly named in travel accounts of the oldest living cities in the world. What was originally a Thracian settlement later evolved into a bustling Roman city and later fell into Byzantine and Ottoman hands. (For a short travel guide to Plovdiv look here)

The four-star Hotel Imperial Plovdiv will be the venue for the sixth My!Europe conference, September 6-9 – with a couple of extra days added on for a Bulgaria round trip, if there is a sufficient number of people sign in.

The conference title will be „EU and Bulgaria – Love and... Calculation?“, and the preliminary program leaves lots of time for group work on the My!Europe Declaration which will reach its final shape in November in Germany after having been discussed in Denmark, Latvia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Great Britain and – after Bulgaria – in the Netherlands. (For details see Calendar).

Preliminary program:
Tuesday: Opening at 16.00 by Prof. Dr. Bogdan Mirchev, St. Kliment Ohridski“ University, Sofia, who will speak about the main theme “Bulgaria and Europe”.

Wednesday: Group work
Thursday: Presentations in plenum
Friday: The conference ends after breakfast.

Practical matters:
Conference organizer: The Bulgarian German Teachers' Association.
